The acclaimed choreographer Akram Khan, is no stranger to dance. His work and company both communicate a sense of narrative within movement, while conveying emotion and attention to detail within the art direction of the conceptual pieces.

Born in London into a family of Bangladeshi origin, he began dancing at seven and studied with the renowned kathak dancer and teacher Sri Pratap Pawar.

Check out his website, it’s pretty epic! http://www.akramkhancompany.net/html/
